Dean Sherif Kamel Appointed Trustee, Board Member of International Business Bodies


School of Business Dean Sherif Kamel was recently appointed as a trustee of the International Management Board of the Association of MBAs and the Business Graduates Association as well as elected as a board member of AACSB International as an "AACSB official representative of an organization from Europe, the Middle East or Africa," representing AUC.

"I am truly honored to be joining these two distinguished, diverse, and international boards that represent two of the leading authorities in the world of business and management education," he said. "I am delighted to be representing AUC and the school of business on the two boards, which I firmly believe contribute to raising the university and the school’s global profile, visibility, and footprint."

Kamel added that he looks forward to working with his colleagues at both entities to develop what he believes is society's most important asset — human capital. For him, the invaluable element of business schools is to help the future leaders, entrepreneurs, movers and shakers become more competitive and agile so they can always make a difference to their community and help realize a transformational, sustainable and scalable impact.

"The AUC School of Business —which celebrates in 2022 its 75th anniversary as a leading institution in business and management education serving the business community in Egypt and the region— has been AACSB accredited since 2006, and by adding both EFMD-EQUIS and AMBA accreditations in 2014, became among the top one percent of leading business schools globally that are triple-crown accredited. Today, the school remains the only triple crown accredited business school in the Middle East North Africa region," he said.
